Give a Gift

Thank you! Your generous donation to the Donum Dei Classical Academy Giving Fund helps make it possible for Donum Dei to pursue its mission fully. Scholarship gifts will ensure Donum Dei’s strong beginning and continued growth for generations—developing lives which shine within our city and across our bridges.

Ways to Give

Please make your check payable to “Donum Dei Classical Academy” and mail it to us at:

Donum Dei Classical Academy
360 9th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94118

Credit Card

You can use your credit or debit card to make a gift online, which will be deposited into Donum Dei’s

Fund at the National Christian Foundation.

IRA Required Minimum Distribution
Depending on your age, you may be able to make a gift to Donum Dei from your IRA’s Required Minimum Distribution. Please consult your tax adviser for additional information.

Appreciated Securities
Donations of appreciated securities are recorded as a charitable gift at the appreciated amount. In most cases, the donor will receive a greater tax benefit than if the appreciated securities are sold and the cash is donated. Also, by donating appreciated securities you can avoid recording a capital gain in the security (assuming the investment has appreciated and that you have held the asset for more than one year). You should check with a tax professional before initiating any transfer of securities.​ This is easily accomplished by using our Donum Dei Stock Gift Form that has our account information for your stock broker. Please email Christine McLean at to request this form.

Corporate Gift Matching
Many companies offer corporate matching programs on charitable gifts made by their employees, thus encouraging employees’ philanthropic endeavors and multiplying the size of their gift to an organization they care about.

Be sure to check with your employer to see if your gifts to the Academy are eligible for corporate matching contributions.

This fund is managed by the National Christian Foundation, a trusted source for gift management and philanthropy, especially for start-up enterprises such as Donum Dei.
